WATCH: Jarquez Hunter scores Auburn football's first touchdown of the season – Sports Illustrated

Auburn is officially on the board against Mercer.
The Tigers received the opening kick and scored on an 11 play, 68-yard drive than ended with a 19-yard touchdown from running back Jarquez Hunter. Quarterback TJ Finley was 3-of-4 passing for 24 yards, completing passes to Malcolm Johnson Jr, Ja'Varrius Johnson, and Tank Bigsby.
Auburn was a perfect 3-for-3 on third down.
You can watch a video of Jarquez Hunter's touchdown run below.
Hunter, a sophomore running back from Philadelphia, Mississippi, ran for 593 yards (6.5 yards per carry) and four touchdowns for the Tigers a season ago.
He was a big play threat for Auburn early on last season, and should prove to be a consistent back during Auburn's first two games this year.
Based on my quick calculations, 19.0 yards per carry is pretty solid. Let's see if Hunter can keep his home-run rush streak going.
